October Monday Knit-along: New Stra Patterns

Course by Jody James

  • Advanced Beginner

When Woolfolk comes out with a new yarn, it is definitely cause for celebration at Cattywampus. We kinda feel like this new Stra yarn was made just for us. It's a rustic blend of linen and ultra merino, which creates a truly unique yarn. Linen is a wonderful, sustainable fiber that gets softer and more luxurious feeling over time and use, so this yarn has life in it and a bit more structure than pure merino. The five patterns they released with Stra are keepers! An easy v-neck sweater (Stige), short/long sleeve layering pop-over (Vand), lacy scarf (Sjov), kimono style cardigan (Ferie), and tunic (Saft). Choose any one of these for our knit-along!

Get your selected Stra pattern for free when you sign up for the knit-along and buy your yarn from us!
** If we don't have enough stock of the yarn you want, please contact us to order more. We are happy to get you the yarn you need!

Every month we like to start a new knit-a-long project at Cattywampus. These are fun, casual gatherings with the support of our resident knit pro Jody James and a gaggle of fellow knitters. It's a chance to enjoy knitting a common project along with others. It's not really a class, so you should have some knit skills already. If you want to knit along with us, but need more help, then please contact us to schedule a private lesson or come to our Sunday Stitch Assist 2-3 pm. Our official KAL meetups are on Monday afternoons 3-5 pm, but you are welcome to knit anytime and at your own pace. Our gatherings are virtual so that we can be together wherever we are! Join us on Zoom meeting ID: 959 493 982.
